Tankers!

 

This week we are taking an insider look at VILIN who have placed an emphasis on hyper-aggressive battles and all around general silliness. VILIN has earned a consistent position on the Global Map.  As a Clan that prides themselves on excellence and still manages to maintain its quirky sense of humor, VILIN is surprisingly approachable for new recruits who are interested in enjoying Clan Wars at a high level.

 

We interviewed with the following players to learn more about VILIN:

 

Armorghost – Clan Commander, does a bit of everything.

Buff_Rumblecrunch / eNumbra– Diplomat, is around for moral support.  (most of the diplomacy goes through Armorghost)

Dogbeast – Deputy Commander, handles a lot of Clan back-end tasks, video creation, and strategy management.

LZ_Schneider – Deputy Commander, does a bit of everything when Armorghost is unavailable and dabbles in everything from Admin to battle calling.

Mac116 – Soldier, makes fun of Armorghost and shoots arty.

 

 

Where did the name VILIN come from?

 

You mentioned being “HAVOK Rising” at one point. Could you tell us a little bit about how VILIN started, how long it has been around, and how VILIN developed as a whole?

 

A lot of times when a Clan splits off from another, there is a short period of success and then the Clan fails, what has been different with VILIN that has allowed you to succeed?

 

What is it like in your Clan?  Is it different from when you were under HAVOK’s umbrella? 

 

You mentioned growing together and having this really tight-knight group.  Is it easy for people to join?  Is the recruitment process rigorous?

 

What were your first fights like?  Do you have any interesting stories about that? 

 

What would you say is VILIN’s playstyle?  When you go into combat, would you attribute a certain style to VILIN’s style of play?

 

You detailed a huge amount of growth, especially with your fights against RELIC.  If you had to give tips to a new Clan who also wanted to grow similarly, what do you think got you to where you are now?

 

How would you say VILIN views Strongholds?  Sounds like you are using it as a training ground.

 

Diplomacy is generally considered a huge part of playing on the Global Map.  How much of your success would you attribute to diplomacy versus skill? 

 

What do you consider to be VILIN’s greatest achievement overall?

 

You mentioned staying together over a long period of time.  Is there anything that you feel stands out about VILIN as far as interesting and quirky customs / traditions?

 

What would you say was your toughest / most exciting Clan Wars battle?

 

I did hear earlier on that Dogbeast mentioned making videos and you (LZ_Schneider) just mentioned making videos.  Are these videos something that VILIN uses as documentation of its fights or are they for fun and open to the public?

 

You had mentioned earlier that a lot of your players like to play mediums.  Without tank locking, some Clans might have a propensity to run all auto-loaders or something along those lines.  Does VILIN have a favorite lineup?

 

Earlier on, you had mentioned that you are always looking for the next thing and that you are never satisfied.  Does VILIN have any specific goals that they’re moving towards at the moment?

 

As an aside, your Teamspeak has a tonne of channels that look really organized.  What is the craziest thing that has ever happened on your Teamspeak?

 

Let’s talk a little bit about current events.  What’s going on on the Global Map right now?

 

Did you have any shout-outs that you wanted to make or anything else that you would like the public to know?

As it stands, we can barely afford to maintain our 14.4kbps dial-up connection!

Could be worse; I had jokingly suggested Juniors(B1 Rush Best Rush), to which the WG rep said "we could do that" - shortly followed by a resounding chorus of "NO!".

 

This is true. I can confirm this. xP
